Oral Cancer Screening
Visiting your dentist regularly does not only keep your teeth healthy and your smile beautiful, but it also helps to ensure total oral health. That means that your dentist should be regularly screening you for signs of oral cancer. This simple examination procedure can help catch signs of cancer in its early stages when it is easiest to treat and more likely to be cured.
At Preferred Dental, oral cancer screenings are part of the routine checkup you should receive once every six months. If you’d like to protect yourself against the possibility of oral cancer, be sure to schedule your checkup today.
Who Is at Risk for Oral Cancer?
While anyone can potentially develop oral cancer, certain people are at higher risk for the disease, and therefore should make sure to have regular screenings. The following people are at the highest risk of developing oral cancer.
- Those who use alcohol heavily
- Those who use tobacco of any kind
- Anyone with a family history of the disease
- Anyone who has previously had oral cancer
If you fit into any of these categories, you’ll benefit from regular oral cancer screenings. But just because you don’t fit into one doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get screened. An oral cancer screening is fast, easy, and can save your life. And because Preferred Dental makes affordable oral cancer screenings in Colorado Springs possible, you don’t have to worry about this process hurting you financially.
